Changes to ITAR 15 October 2013

Posted on: 27/09/2013

New rules implementing export control reforms become effective October 15, 2013. The keystone of these reform efforts is to transfer jurisdiction of less sensitive military items currently controlled under the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) to the more flexible Export Administration Regulations (EAR) administered by the Department of Commerce. The rules going into effect on October 15 transfer certain military aircraft, engines, and parts and components off the United States Munitions List (USML), as well as make a number of regulatory changes to the ITAR and EAR to facilitate the transition of items from the USML to the EAR Commerce Control List (CCL).


In August 2013 the President of the United States directed an interagency review of the US Export Control system. The Export Control Reform Initiative seeks to strengthen national security and the competitiveness of key U.S. manufacturing and technology sectors by focusing on current threats, as well as adapting to the changing economic and technological landscape.
